Dogs and cats are prone to ear infections for a number of reasons, but you can use Zymox Otic Hydrocortisone Free cream to kill the infection, no matter what its origin may be. Called otitis externa, these infections are most often caused by yeast and other factors. Itching, pain and rawness are some of the symptoms you may notice in your pet. Help your pet get relief by applying Zymox Otic Hydrocortisone Free cream. When rubbed onto a dirty canine or feline ear, the cream combats the bacteria and yeast. After a week of daily applications, the infection should be gone. Chronic infections may need two weeks of daily application for relief. See your vet if the infection doesn't seem to be subsiding. Zymox Otic Hydrocortisone Free cream is a topical cream that works best on unwashed ears, and you should keep your pet away from water throughout the treatment process.
Directions: Apply liberally to dirty ear, filling ear canal. Gently massage and work into infected area. Wipe to remove excess. Treat once a day for 7 days, 14 days for chronic infections. Recommended for extended use on persistant cases. Post treatment flush is recommended to remove any residual product and accumulated dead skin cells.
Cautions: DO NOT clean ears before or during treatment. Do not use conjunction with other topical war medications or cleaners. Do not allow water in or near ear during treatment. If condition persists or worsens, consult your veterinarian. Do not use on punctured ear drums. Do not use on pregnant or lactating females. Keep out of reach of children.
MY YELLOW LAB HAS ALWAYS HAD EAR ISSUES--THIS WORKS !
Great For Rabbits! by MissBunny420 from St. Augustine, Florida11/02/2011
my bunny is a lop and has those pesky ear problems that often plague them. He developed large lumps just under the base of his ears. I treated him with injectable penicillin for some time and saw some results, but them decided to approach the problem topically....using Baytril Otic drops and an ear wash. When I finished up the Baytril, the lumps were way smaller, but not completely gone.
I contacted my vet and he suggested the Zymox, saying that it was effective on stubborn cases. Well, I'm here to say that the Zymox will be my first line of attack when the problem reoccurs. It's not always easy to find "rabbit safe" products AND this product is also safe for long term use. That's why I purchased the 4 oz. bottle.....it's economical, effective and easy to use.
THIS PRODUCT WORKS! by Dark Cloak Danes01/31/2012
Zymox Octic does what it says! The first application, Day One, removed the *Stinky* build up.
The second,Day Three, soothed the ear and eased the irritation * No more ear flapping* and a much happpier dog.
The third,Day Five, has removed all the deep *Gucky* build up and the *Redness* has gone away. Easy to use and at a great price! I will always keep Zymox Octic.
Great Product! by Ski07/15/2012
My poodle has waxy ears. This product does a really nice job of softening the wax in his inner ears. After a treatment, when he shakes his head, the wax comes flying out.
My vet introduced me to this product.
Love this product by Andy07/06/2012
My dogs ears have had a bad infection for months and nothing has helped. I ordered this product and after a few weeks there has been a huge improvement and I think another few weeks will have them totally clear.
Good for stubborn inflammation by Ruthe from Michigan12/09/2012
Zymox Ear Cleaner twice a week usually keeps ears clear but when inflammation breaks through a few days of Otic does the trick.
